International Standards and Conformity Assessment for all electrical, electronic and related technologies



Reference EN 60793-1-22:2002
Title Optical fibres - Part 1-22: Measurement methods and test procedures - Length measurement
Project Number 13861
Abstract/Scope Gives methods for measuring the length and elongation of optical fibres (typically within a cable). Length is fundemental for evaluation of transmission characteristics such as losses and bandwidths. Five methods are described: delay measurement, backscattering, fibre elongation, mechanical length, and phase shift.

(1) Date of ratification (dor) date when the Technical Board notes the approval of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), from which time the standard may be said to be approved

(2) Date of availability (dav) date when the definitive text in the official language versions of an approved CEN/CENELEC publication is distributed by the Central Secretariat

(3) Date of announcement (doa) latest date by which the existence of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), a TS or a CWA has to be announced at national level

(4) Date of publication (dop) latest date by which an EN has to be implemented at national level by publication of an identical national standard or by endorsement

(5) Date of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn

(6) This list of normative references is purely indicative. The only official list of normative reference is the list of the published standard.
